Skin Saviour | Elemis Freshskin Matte Moisturiser

Elemis FreshSkin Moisturiser

Hi my name is Jacquelyn and I am the world’s worst blogger! Sorry people. I’m so bad, but blogging is a hobby right? And it’s difficult to fit it in sometimes when your working full time. Speaking of work, I just applied for a full time job at my work. Aaaaaah. Scary stuff. I’m nervous already. I hope they interview me. This kinda means I’m an adult. I just applied for an adult job. Not a graduate job. No. A real life adult job. I really hope they interview me, even if I am relatively inexperienced. I want this soooo bad. Will be weird getting interviewed by people I know. Do I picture them naked or not? One of lifes many dilemmas. I think I will probably try not picture them naked because that is the worst interview tactic anyone has ever told me. Anyway, I’m stressing out here for no apparent reason. Which brings me on to my skin saviour of the year.

I’ve banged on about Elemis Freshskin before, it is seriously good. Now I love Elemis, but I can’t afford £20 odd for a bottle of cleanser (the lime blossom cleanser is ah-mazing), so freshskin is right up my street. It is aimed at teens to mid twenties, but when did an age recommendation ever stop anyone using anything? ‘Oh look this moisturiser is for teenagers, I better not use it’ said no one ever. If we get into technicalities I am still early, verging on mid twenties so I fit the bill perfectly. My skin is weird – dry in places, but my nose? Well if you wanted to I’m pretty sure you could crack an egg on there and fry it some days. It has mahoosive pores in there too, kinda like looking at a greasy moon is the way I would describe it. Not cool. I’ve always been plagued with big, disgusting spots on my nose every now and again, but generally other than a few tiny white lumps here and there the rest of my skin is clear.

Freshskin

Moisturisers and skin care can be problematic. Do you buy one for dry skin and risk making the oil rig that is your nose worse? Or do you buy one for oily skin and end up turning the rest of your face into a dry and barren dessert? Or do you buy both and have two sets of skin care, taking up precious space in the shower? First world problems here. Well in my teenage years, I went with the latter. In my early twenties I went with the former. Neither was ideal. Now, well now I have found a moisturiser that works for me. Ladies and Gentlemen let me introduce to you the Elemis Freshskin Skin Clear Mattifying Moisturiser.

The packaging is fairly plain and colour coded. Anything blue is for mattifying your skin and anything pink is for normal skin. I think that because this is fairly plain, you could give it to boys as well as girls. It is important to treat your teenage skin right –  I remember my brother looking after his and he has fabulous skin for a man now. I can see mums and grannies buying this for their teenagers for Chrimbo. Points to Elemis. The pump dispenser works and doesn’t clog, not much else to say here.

The texture, hmmm. Not too thick, not to watery. Exactly what you want from a moisturiser. It spreads evenly on the face and absorbs really well. Typically I give this around 5-10 minutes to soak in whilst I dry my hair before applying any makeup and I am left with no oily residue on my face. I do find that when I use this my nose gets marginally less oily during the day than if I don’t use it. Winner. This contains shea butter for added moistures and bergamot which is antiseptic to help reduce spots. It also contains cucumber and witch hazel, which are pretty common skin care ingredients for moisturising and fighting spots. I cant’t say that this noticeably reduces spots on it’s own, but combined with the serum from this range, it definitely does. Elemis don’t use any nasties – parabens, SLS etc in any of their products which is a bonus.

Okay, so the downside – it is quite pricey. £21 for a 50ml pot from Feel Unique. It is worth it though, trust me. It is my skin hero and a dessert island product.

Have you tried Freshskin? Did you love it as much as me? Can anyone recommend a nice face scrub, I am on the hunt?

Bargain Alert|Sanctuary Body Butter and Soufflé Set|Review

thelittlescottishcorner

Happy Easter Sunday all. I hope you are all having a nice holiday, or if your like me and Easter holidays are non-existent then at least enjoying your day. As I was browsing the Boots website yesterday, I stumbled across this total bargain set of 3 body butters/soufflé from Sanctuary. I received 2 of them for Christmas and have been alternating between the two of them every now and again for a treat. I know Sanctuary stuff is not very expensive even at full price, but to me it just feels a little luxurious and special.

Sanctuary Triple Moisture Bliss|the LittleScottishCorner

Sanctuary Triple Moisture Bliss

In the set you get 3 different body lotions/butters: Cocooning Body Butter (red lid), Mande Lular Body Souffle (white lid) and Body Butter (Orange Lid). This is currently on offer at Boots for £4! Yeah you read that right! All of these are 100ml tubs, so not massive but still considerable. Obviously I don’t have the Cocooning Body Butter so I can’t comment on it but I will write a few quick notes about the other two.

The Sanctuary Body Butter and Mande Lular Body Souffle Review|theLittleScottishCorner

The Sanctuary Body Butter and Mande Lular Body Souffle

What Boots Say…

‘A visit to the luxurious Sanctuary Spa in the heart of London’s Covent Garden leaves you glowing and rejuvenated from top-to-toe. Sanctuary’s range of award-winning products has been developed in the spa to give you the visible results and pampering indulgence of a professional treatment every day.

This Sanctuary Triple Moisture Bliss set is a fabulous gift for someone special. Treat and pamper your skin with this indulgent selection of body moisturises, including award winning body butter to instantly smooth and soften for a last silken finish! The Mande Lular Body Soufflé is a sensuous evocation of an ancient Indonesian beauty treatment, combining exotic spices with skin nourishing shea butter.

The set comes in a matching, opulent orange, purple and silver-themed triangular presentational box with a floral design, ideal for gifting.’ – Boots

Sanctuary Mande Lular Body Souffle Review|theLittleScottishCorner

Sanctuary Souffle

What I Say…

I will start by saying that there is very little difference between the two of these in my opinion, other than the consistency. The soufflé is much lighter, with the butter being really thick. I like to use the butter on my feet as they get very dry. The scent is the signature Sanctuary spa scent, which is quite spicey smelling and I really like. These contain macademia oil and vitamin E – which we all know are fantastic for moisturising the skin.  I find both of these to be easily absorbed into the skin and they don’t leave me feeling at all greasy. Of the two I prefer the butter, but that is purely based on the much thicker texture.

The Sanctuary Body Butter Review|theLittleScottishCorner

The Sanctuary Body Butter

I really love both of these and I’m tempted to go order a few more from Boots to have as backups. This price is brilliant. This would make a great gift set for family or friends and you could even split it up to give one to three people. I suffer from irritated skin and this didn’t cause me to have a flare up which is another plus. All in a hug thumbs up from me. Now go order them before they sell out.

What’s your go to body moisturiser? Does anyone else like Sanctuary as much as me?

What’s in my Daily Makeup Bag?

Kipling Make-up Bag

My Make-up Bag

This one has been floating around the beauty world for quite some while now and I figured I should share what I have in my daily make-up bag. I’ve said it before, I don’t generally wear much make-up to work, foundation, blusher, mascara and powder is the norm really. As you can see my make-up bag is bright pink and comes complete with a monkey. These monkeys are a signature of Kipling bags and are apparently named after people that work there. The only thing I don’t like about this bag is that it shows up the dirt easily, but it is washable so that is not too much of an issue. I stuck a little rabbit pin badge on there too, just to make it extra cute.

Kipling make-up bag with bareminerals brushes

Opening the front pocket

In the front pocket I keep my flawless face brush from BareMinerals along with some other bits and bobs. If I am travelling these are the brushes I can’ live without. You can see just how roomy the front pocket is and I like the elasticated holders, which are handy for smaller brushes and eye-liners. I know many people like to keep their brushes on display, but I much prefer keeping them in the bag as there is less chance of dust and dirt getting on them.

Main compartment

Main compartment

The main compartment is really spacious and I use it to store everything that I might reach for on a daily basis. I like how it securely zips up so that nothing falls out when travelling. When I emptied the bag out I was shocked at how much actually fitted in this tiny bag.

Bare Minerals Brushes

Brush collection

Okay, so the brushes with pink bits don’t actually live in this bag, they have their own travel pouch but I use them a lot so thought I should include them anyway. First up I have my Bare Minerals concealer brush. I got this about 4 years ago and it is still going strong. I usually try and wash this at least once a month as I don’t want bacteria spreading on my face. This is a full coverage brush so I need to be careful not to over do the concealer. I then have the Blemish remedy brush for those times (like today) when I have a crater on my face. The next 4 brushes are smaller than normal size and are synthetic, but are all from Bare Minerals. The line diffuser and contour brush I only tend to use when I wear eye make-up, which is usually on nights out or meals out with the bf. The line diffuser is great for smudging out eyeliner or applying thin lines of eye shadow. I then have a blush brush and a flawless face brush which I use everyday to apply my blusher and mineral veil. Finally I have my full size flawless face brush which I used to apply mineral foundation.

Eyeliners

Eyeliners

I have 2 eyeliners in this bag: a black one from the Bodyshop and a turquoise one from Avon. I don’t wear either of these everyday, but wear them quite often at the weekend. I’ve replaced the body shop eyeliner with my new favourite Urban Decay Zero from the Shattered Face Case, but will keep this one in here ‘just in case’. The final tool in my bag is a little bit disgusting, so sorry. It is a blackhead removal tool from the Bodyshop. I try not to use this, but when you get a horrible spot it can sometimes be too tempting.

Benefit Porefessional, Fake-Up, Boing, Stay don't stray, maybelline dream mousse

Base Products

This is where it gets a little exciting!  Base products, which I mix around a little depending on how my skin is. I like to smooth a little Benefit Porefessional over my nose and cheek area to try and reduce my bucket like pores. Following on from this I sweep fake-up under my eyes in a v shape and blend out to hide my big dark circles. Sometimes I will apply a couple of dots of stay don’t stray; it really just depends on how oily or dry my face is. Next I use Boing shade 2 to conceal and spots I have (at the moment loads). It really is fantastic, but creased under my eyes so be careful. I got this duo of 2 and 3 in the how to look the best at everything kit and come summer shade 3 will be a better match for me, so I like having the 2. If I have stupidly dry skin I will use the maybelline dream matte mouse in the shade sand. This foundation applies really well and I can’t believe it was under a tenner. The wear time for the matte mousse is also pretty good, lasting 6-8 hours on me when set with powder.

More Base Products

More Base Products

If I have a really bad spot, I will skip the Boing and apply the BareMinerals blemish remedy to try and speed up the healing time. This doesn’t offer much coverage, but is very light allowing the skin to breathe and you don’y have to worry about clogging up. If my dark circles are particularly bad I will set them using BareMinerals Summer Bisque concealer which can be pretty drying on its own. Once I am happy everything is covered (even if I do look cakey according to the BF, which I don’t), I buff a little of the BareMinerals Original SPF15 in Medium Beige onto my skin. I like to even out my skin tone and find that this offers light to medium coverage depending on application. I use the BareMinerals Mineral Veil to set my make-up once I have applied my blusher.

Benefit, Mua and Sleek

Cheeks

I’ve bought so many blushers the past few months and these 3 are the ones that have managed to stay in my bag. I really love Fine One One from Benefit as it incorporates a highlighter, but it just doesn’t last on my cheeks. A bargain I found lately was this blusher from MUA in the shade Bon Bon for only £1. Its very soft and a bit messy, but does have great pigmentation so a light hand is needed. Finally I have the blush I am LOVING just now from Sleek in the shade coral. It is almost like a bit or a bronzer and looks very dark in the pan but once blended out looks amazing on my cheeks. Well I think it does anyway. I’ve already managed to make quite a dent in it and maybe, just maybe I will finish it one day.

Eyes and Lips

Eyes and Lips

The Model Co mascara is still in here from the wand experiment I did a few weeks ago. I should probably throw it out before it festers. My current go to mascara is they’re real from Benefit. I prefer Bad Gal, but have a few miniature tubes of this to work through first. I’m on a mission to use up some products so have chucked this mini Smashbox lipgloss in there; unfortunately it is so small I can never seem to find it at the bottom of the bag to use 😦 . I’ve been putting everything I got in the You Beauty Advent Calendar to proper use and think I need to review this Lipgloss from Stila. It isn’t cruelty free, but I figured I should use it up and it is actually pretty good. Finally I have my Baby Lips in Mint Fresh. I wouldn’t buy this again, but really want to use it up and actually quite like the mintyness on my lips. I find this to be quite drying and a little over hyped to be honest. I hope you enjoyed seeing what is in my makeup bag! I would love to see inside yours because I am nosey like that! Link me in the comments if you decide to do this?

Do you have any of these products in your makeup bag?

The Palette You Need in Your Bag: Urban Decay Shattered Face Case – Review and Swatches

I got a bit bored and decided to play with the effects in Pics Art. The palette in its box just waiting to be opened.

Okay, so I said a while back that I would review this absolute beauty of a palette and it was only a fortnight ago that I felt ready. There is a little story behind this palette and why I wanted it so badly. Many moons ago when I was 15 or 16 I sat underneath my Christmas tree and unwrapped my presents from my Auntie. My Auntie always bought amazing presents, so I was a bit like ‘what is she giving me this for?’ when I opened up a box containing a Virgin Vie palette. I must say at the time I didn’t really wear all that much make-up : a quick slick of lip gloss and maybe some eye-shadow if I was going somewhere nice. My only palette at that time was from Pupa and was shaped like a teddy bear (I bought it in Tenerife when I was 12/ turning 13). Back when I was a child/teen I don’t think make-up was as big/as much the norm when you were young, so I didn’t wear it much. Anyway, after my Auntie explaining the make-up was to make me look nice in the shop I worked in at the time in case any nice boys came in, I cracked it open.

So this is what it looked like new (I stole the picture from Ebay). Mine (yes I still have it, I can’t part with it) no longer looks like this. I finished the powder, lost the puff and finished 3 or 4 lip glosses. The highlighter I decanted into a small tub and threw the bottom layer out. The palette came on many a night out and as such was in 3 pieces and held together with a hair bobble. The silver, grey and black shadows are empty, as are the 3 blushes on the right. The pink eye-shadow has almost hit pan, as has the orangey-bronze. Needless to say it was well loved., even after the initial scepticism And this is where Urban Decay comes into the mix. I needed a new ‘night out palette’ and the shattered face case fitted. So 8 years after receiving this one, I opened my parcels on Christmas day to receive a new beauty from my Auntie!

Packaging

This comes in a neat little box showing you the contents on the reverse. It is only when you take it out of the box that the full beauty is revealed. A ‘shattered’ looking  and very sturdy purple and silver case, which looks the part in any woman’s handbag. It is in 2 layers, the top housing the eye products and the bottom the face products. What I like the most is the inclusion of two full size and great quality mirrors. I mean we have all been there….doing the make up on the train/bus/taxi ride, or even at the bar. This is the perfect night out case! It is also pretty compact as you can see in the comparison to the naked basics palette. Bear in mind naked basics is the same size as a modern smart phone (sony xperia or htc one are what I have to compare). It is also very sturdy and snaps shut, so no pink or grey inners of the handbag!

I had never tried any of the eyeliners from Urban Decay, but upon opening this on Christmas day my mum informed me of how good they were. Yes, you read that right! My mum had tried Urban Decay eyeliners and I had not. Eyeliner is generally something I only wear at the weekends and even then not that often, but since getting this palette I have worn it every weekend. This is the softest eyeliner I have ever bought and as such is so easy to blend out. I love wearing this on my bottom lash line and on the lids smudged out for a smokey look. Normally the bf complains when I wear makeup, but after our 10mile bike ride on saturday I felt the need to put this on. As I knew I wouldn’t be leaving the house in the evening I didn’t bother with a base and he commented on how gorgeous my makeup was. Even he liked this eyeliner. It is a lovely black shade which is so easy to apply and smudge if that’s your thing. I love this so much that I’ve decided to but the set of 6 mini UD eyeliners come payday. This is a mini eyeliner, but I think it will last me for ages and when it runs out I can easily replace it. You can see how black it is in the swatch, perfect for smokey eyes. Also once you have this on it doesn’t budge! I have worn this to a hot, sweaty gig and it was still perfect. That’s without primer ladies. Expect a good 10 hours wear from this.

Lip Colour

Super saturated lip colour

Yay! I finally got a lip crayon. This full size lip crayon normally retails at £14 from House of Fraser. The colour of this one was quite difficult to capture, it’s a little bit of a murky rose pink and is called lovechild. How do UD come up with their names? Anyway this is really creamy and gives a lovely glossy finish but I found it a little drying. Laterly I have been applying a good coat of lip balm underneath this and it has helped massively. This really does not survive through eating or drinking, but you could get 3 hours wear from it if your not doing either of those. It applies easily and is fairly fool proof so if you are new to lip colour this could be a good one to try out. The colour is fairly safe and should suit most people, although if you are dark skinned it may not show up as well.

Eyeshadows

These are really the show stoppers in this palette, five super pigmented shades that will suit most skin tones.

From L-R Nameless, Remix, Shakedown

From L-R Nameless, Remix, Shakedown

Nameless is a medium grey with a bit of a brown undertone and is satin in finish. The texture is soft and I experienced no issues with fallout. Wear time was excellent with all of the shadows and this is probably my favourite shade in the palette.

Remix is a royal purple with tiny micro glitter. This one is not as soft as nameless, probably due to the glitter, but still a great formula. Excellent colour payoff and definitely one for the party season.

Shakedown is another satin, this time in gunmetal. I found the texture of this one to be a little drier than the other two, but it still applied well and I didn’t have very much fallout.

From L-R Nameless again, Minor Sin and Bleach

From L-R Nameless again, Minor Sin and Bleach

Minor Sin is a pink champagne shade with micro glitter and you could probably use this to highlight if you wanted. The shimmer is golden and the base colour has warm undertones, which I liked. Colour payoff is really good with this one and it has such a smooth texture. Another favourite. In fact I am wearing it right now!

Bleach is the only matte in this palette and is a yellowey beige. It reminded me of one of the shades from the basics palette, so I did a little comparison. As you can see it is similar to W.O.S but not the same. This one is very soft and as such a little bit prone to fallout. Still wears well, but is not as pigmented as the others. Makes a great all over shade.

Blush and Highlighter

In this palette are two shades of blush and one highlighter. They are all lovely powder offerings and are extremely pigmented, so a light hand is needed with them!

Overexposed Blush

Overexposed Blush

Overexposed is a matte dusky pink, which has coral undertones. This is my favourite blush in the palette and lasts on my skin for around 6 hours with no primer before it needs reapplying. Again it has a soft texture and can easily be blended out.

Temper blush and Glint highlighter

Temper blush and Glint highlighter

Temper has a little bit of shimmer and is a medium pink shade. I am not so much of a fan of this one as overexposed, but it is still nice. The texture is again lovely and smooth and can easily be blended. A little goes a long way with this one.

Glint s a frosty golden highlighter packed with shimmer. This is not great if you have enlarged pores like me as it accentuates them, but I have used this on the lids and it looked great. Payoff is great and the texture is soft, but not as soft as the blushes.

Overexposed, Temper and Glint

Overexposed, Temper and Glint

Price and Where to buy

The shattered face case is £30 and can be purchased from House of Fraser.

Final Thoughts

Overall I am in love with this palette, the only thing it is missing is a brush, but I guess if they included that it might get a bit bulky. The lasting power of all the items is great and they are all super pigmented. A big winner in my book. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something small to chuck in their handbag.

What is your go to palette? Would you use this one?

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream – Review

wpid-PicsArt_1386253039844.jpgYou may remember me posting this little sample a few months ago in my Benefit haul? Well I totally forgot I even had this until I was rummaging through my bathroom cupboard around a month ago to see what needed used up. In the time between my Benefit haul and now, I had fallen in love with their It’s Potent Eye Cream and as such decided to but a mini skin care pack, which included this face cream in it. I swiftly decanted this into my tiny pot of face cream and began moisturising.

What Benefit Say?

‘Say good-bye to dry skin and hello to “total moisture.” This facial cream provides concentrated immediate & long-term hydration for a radiantly refreshed complexion. Our exclusive tri-radiance complex helps develop the skin’s reserves of water & reinforce skin’s moisture barrier. Contains mango butter, a natural plant-based emollient known to provide moisture. For normal to dry skin.In consumer testing, 100% of people tested felt that their skin was immediately and intensely quenched.’ – Benefit

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream

Packaging

I am basing my thoughts on the miniature jar I have and looking at the pictures on benefit’s website, the full size jar looks much ans such the same. I love that this face cream comes in a very vintage feeling and robust glass jar. It just looks so classy. I am very wary now as I managed to shatter my bottle of Bio Effect EGF Serum at the weekend by dropping it in the sink. Total bummer as I had just started to see real results with it in terms of skin smoothness. The packaging is typical to Benefit and I challenge you to find someone who doesn’t think it is cute.

Ingredients

This contains alcohol. Great if you like rubbing alcohol on your skin, but not so great if you have sensitive skin. I have to question why alcohol is in here. I mean why? It’s a moisturiser and alcohol dries the skin. Seems counter intuitive. Anyway, I haven’t noticed this being overly drying and it is pretty good at its job, so maybe we can just pretend it isn’t there?

I was pleased that there isn’t any parabens in here! Yay! And the inclusion of mango seed butter made me happy. So alcohol aside, the ingredients don’t shout out as being too nasty to me.

Look at that Cute Little Jar

Texture and Moisture Factor

The texture of this is very light and the smell is a clean one. I know that makes no sense, but I can’t actually pin point what the smell is, it eludes me. It is sweet and girly, but also very clean and fresh smelling. Benefit have really created a magic smell there. The cream applies well and soaks in pretty fast, leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth. I would have liked if this was slightly thicker, but that is just my personal preference. This isn’t the most moisturising moisturiser I have ever tried, but it does pack some punch. After using this for a couple of weeks, the dry patches on my nose, cheeks and under eyes had not totally cleared up, but they had noticeably improved so I suppose that means it is doing its job. I find that a blueberry sized blob of this is enough for my neck and face, so this little jar will probably last me another while.

Total Moisture Face Cream

Total Moisture Face Cream

Price and Where to Buy

This is an expensive moisturiser and comes in at £27.50 for 48.2g from Benefit.

Final Thoughts

I did like this moisturiser and it did work well under make-up, reducing my dry patches, but I think it is quite pricey. If it was a few quid cheaper I would probably repurchase, sadly I have a lot of half opened tubes of moisturiser in my cupboard, so maybe one of those will fare just as well for cheaper?

Have you tried any of the Benefit skincare? What is your favourite moisturiser? Any budget friendly recommendations with no parabens?
